Blog | Find Happiness In Your Life And Career

Thoughts, Insights and More! Scott shares his personal experiences on how to find true happiness and discover the "authentic you". 

The following list was written by Kent Keith in 1968 when he was a 19 year old student at Harvard. It is known as the "10 Paradoxical Commandments of Leadership." It has been printed in a variety of places around the world and used by millions of people. I am posting it because I simply cannot think of a better, more passionate way to live life. 

Please post your thoughts, thanks!

1. People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.

Love and trust them anyway.

2. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.

Do good anyway.

3. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.

Succeed anyway.

4. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.

Do good anyway.

5. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.

Be honest and frank anyway.

6. The biggest people with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest people with the smallest minds.

Think big anyway.

7. People favor underdogs but follow top dogs.

Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

8. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.

Build anyway.

9. People really need help but may attack you if you help them.

Help people anyway.

10. Give the world the best you have, and you may get kicked in the teeth.

Give the world your best anyway.
